Mommy Bloggers Philippines (MBP) partners with Sinag Tala to help Marawi kids

One of my favorite bloggers community, Mommy Bloggers Philippines (MBP), have decided to do something extra special this Christmas. I received a message recently that MBP, with the help of Nutri10, have partnered with non-profit organization, Sinag Tala, to send vitamins and supplements to the kids stricken by the war in Marawi. The war is over, as we have been told, but its ill-effects on the health of the families affected are not. Sinag Tala has been helping out these people since the war, having sheltered hundreds of children in their playroom. Through them, MBP has been able to send […]

Christmas Traditions: The Festival of Lights

It’s our fifth year (I think!) to include The Festival of Lights in our Christmas Traditions itinerary. The past two years, we’ve made sure to pass by it after our kids’ annual school musical which they’ve been staging at the RCBC theater in Ayala. Since we’re already in the area, I thought we might as well scoot over and see the beautiful lights dance at Ayala Triangle the same day. Family Christmas Traditions came really late for us this year. Pablo’s show, Matilda, closed on December 10 and Lukas’ and Judah’s school musical, All About that Baby, was staged yesterday, […]

Easy Recipes: Mushroom and Garlic pasta

I just might be sharing more easy recipes in the next few weeks here on my blog until after my son’s season with Matilda ends. (Yep, he’s in the show alternating as Nigel and it’s been crazy for us schedule-wise the past few weeks) Sorry guys, being a stage mother takes a lot of your energy) That’s actually how I ended up cooking Mushroom and Garlic pasta today. We’re due to visit the supermarket but I feel too lazy to go out and do so and I didn’t consider Honest Bee because we’ve got a tight budget this week. Hello […]

Food of my Childhood: Mom’s Kare Kare

I’m an avid fan of only one Kare Kare – my mom’s. Unless it’s crispy Kare Kare, then I may not be very eager to taste your Kare Kare if you serve it to me. Especially not the one using Ox tripe. I’m good with pork hocks or regular meaty cubes which my mom fondly uses. This recipe goes to my Food of my Childhood compilation. I grew up eating my mom’s Kare Kare, which she usually served on Sunday lunches. I’ve always looked forward to Sunday lunches because my mom always prepared great feasts on Sundays because that’s when […]

Parenting: The Bullies

“Somebody bullied Lukas at camp,” my 8-year old son’s best friend told me. According to her, they made fun of my son’s tiny voice and accent when he speaks. And when Lukas tried to tell them to stop, they ridiculed him even more. I was shocked! The news was totally unexpected because my husband was with Lukas at the camp and it happened months ago, in summer. No one informed me about any bullying incident that involved my son. I was fuming! Being a mother, my initial reaction was to text my husband and demand that the parents of these […]
